Whether you prefer to fly, use the train or use your own car, it's never been easier or cheaper to get to SW France!
From UK, whilst there are numerous ferry routes and operators, we find the easiest to be either the Channel Tunnel or a ferry from Portsmouth-St.Malo, or Portsmouth-Caen. If you live in the south west of England, Plymouth- St. Malo, Plymouth-Roscoff and Poole-Cherbourg routes are further alternatives. High speed services operate from Portsmouth to Caen (Brittany Ferries) and from Poole, Weymouth & Jersey to St. Malo (Condor).

New for 2014 : Brittany Ferries économie service Portsmouth to Le Havre : 20%-30% cheaper
(and with 13 pet friendly cabins for those with a doggie !)
The cheapest way is to use the Channel Tunnel from Folkestone to Calais : then it's just 6.5 hrs with auto-routes almost
all the way - go via Rouen to avoid Paris !
From Ireland, Brittany Ferries go from Cork to Roscoff (March - October), and Irish Ferries go from Rosslare to Cherbourg (all year) and Roscoff (May - September)
From anywhere else in Europe, driving is even easier: La Vieille Grange is just 10 minutes away from the main A10 Autoroute from Paris to Bordeaux.
The Eurostar and French TGV network will deliver you to either Angouleme, Bordeaux or La Rochelle (with a change in Paris or Lille if using Eurostar) from almost anywhere in Europe. Hire cars are easy to collect from all train stations.
As an example, guests from the UK have found return journeys leaving London St.Pancras at 08.22, arriving in Bordeaux at 18.00, for £99 return: cheaper than many return journeys by air - and certainly more relaxed !
